A fair amount of stuff was discussed by Bungie last week when they held a panel at TwitchCon to talk about Seasons in Destiny 2. But that’s not all though, there’s even more cool updates coming to Destiny 2 in the near future.
In their latest This Week at Bungie game director Christopher Barrett outlined a short of list of updates that they are currently working on.
Game director Christopher Barrett is also working on making Destiny 2 a game that will challenge and reward you in new ways
Among the list of updates is new systems and rewards for hardcore players additional pursuits, better incentive to run the challenging prestige Nightfall’s and Raids and private matches for the competitive PvP community.
Here’s the full list of updates that Bungie are working on.
- New systems and rewards to give our most engaged players additional, optional pursuits.
- Better incentives for players who complete challenging Prestige activities.
- Better rewards and replay value for strikes, adventures, and Lost Sectors.
- Private matches for the competitive community (we are targeting early 2018).
- Crucible tuning like adjusted Supremacy scoring and better spawning rules.
- Better incentives for completing Crucible matches (and penalties for quitting competitive games).
- Continued improvements to Iron Banner and Faction Rallies, including uniqueness of rewards.
- Changes to make the mod economy more interesting and impactful.
- Ongoing improvements to Exotics, including adjustments to reduce instances of duplication.
- New ways to spend surplus currency and materials (looking at you Legendary Shards).
- An emote interface that allows players to equip Salty, Spicy Ramen, Six Shooter, and Flip Out all at the same time.
Christopher Barrett did not mention exactly when these updates might appear in-game or if all of these updates will definitely make it into the game however, some Destiny fans who have been fans of Bungie for years commented on Reddit that Bungie does not usually talk about updates and features unless they are certain they can deliver them.
At the end of the This Week at Bungie post Barrett also stated that they are working on and that we’ll tak again soon.
I am glad that Bungie are listening to the cries of the community and are working on improving the game for the long-term. Destiny 2 definitely needs some updates that will bring back that certain ‘hook’ that had myself and thousands of others addicted to Destiny 1 day in and day out.
